I have this in my notes:
<<Just hang on a couple of days. I am getting some new information. I have
to sort this out but I think that James Harvey left for Oklahoma and never
was heard from again. He went by the name of Charles. It is his two sons
that are buried at the Sexton property. The father came from Scotland. His
wife was Mahala Pittman Sexton?? and is buried there. She remarried when
Charles died, lived there and is buried as a Sexton. Lewis is the brother of
Charles and did die young. M. A. Pittman is the mother of Mahala. That is
why she is buried there. There are no other people buried in the Cemetery.
This is all I have now. Will verify this and put you in contact with the
family. Didn't ask about the Unknown yet.>>
Now, I am not sure what all of this means, to tell you the truth. Does any
of it make sense?
